About


MES 16

Join the International Media Education Summit in Rome on November 4/5 2016.

Each year the summit brings together a global network of media educators and media literacy practitioners to share research, pedagogy and innovation on all aspects of media education, media literacy education and media / technology in education.

Now running for ten years, MES is convened annually by the Centre for Excellence in Media Practice and is now an international event, hosted in Prague in 2014, Boston, MA in 2015 and this year in Rome, by John Cabot University.

Keynote addresses / workshops are confirmed from Yoko Akama, Sonia Livingstone, Jad Melki and Mark Readman. Participative workshops will be run by Yoko Akama on research methods and Antonio Lopez on youth media activism.

Presenters will be invited to submit their work to a special co-edition of the Media Education Research Journal and the Journal of Media Literacy Education.

Conference Papers


MES2016 invites presentations of original pedagogic/ educational research in the broad fields of media education, media literacy education and media / technology in education. These papers should share the outcomes of research / practitioner enquiry, raising questions for the audience to discuss. Presentations are typically 15-20 minutes in length, forming part of a parallel session of 3 or 4 papers.

We are now accepting abstracts of no more than 200 words (excluding references). Your abstract should be double-space and in Arial font no less than size 12. Submissions can be made in either a Word document or in RTF format.

The abstract must include:

  • A title of no more than 15 words which provides useful pointers on the key topics to be discussed;
  • A list of references at the end (a maximum of 5 texts and no fewer than 2 texts)
  • Five key words;
  • A short biography of a maximum of 35 words.

MERJ Conversations


This strand of the conference offers a different, more interactive platform for the exchange of research, practice and innovation in the broad field of creative, arts and media education. MERJ conversations are given more time than standard presentations (typically two per parallel session) and can take the form of a seminar discussion, panel, workshop or roundtable, but we are open to other proposals.

We are now accepting abstracts of no more than 200 words (excluding references). Your abstract should be double-space and in Arial font no less than size 12. Submissions can be made in either a Word document or in RTF format.
